The Spawn Of Grandfather Nurgle

I've always had a soft spot for Nurgle. Well, more of a sore. Of all the Chaos Gods he has the most personality, with his twisted version of benevolence, because everyone wants new an interesting diseases.

Amongst Nurgle's minions it's the diminutive, mischievous Nurglings that occupy the rotten holes of my heart, although the new Plague Bearers are also awesome.

This leaves me in a quandary as to how to include the little buggers in an army, in 40K or Fantasy, but that's a post for another time (after the release of the new Chaos Space Marine Codex certainly).

Anyway the point of this post was to put up pictures of the Nurglings sprue (photos taken from Bitz Barn)

I'd feared that the models would be far more clip together in nature, and that only the outer "layer" would be whole models. Instead it would appear that the Nurglings are awesome all the way through. There's certainly a few to be stolen for base decoration, if not whole piles to be broken down (which I'm glad about because that would have probably have made for a less impressive set overall in terms of look and construction difficulty).

I think am certainly going to end up with a Nurgling infestation at some point, because the models are so characterful, be it just as a set for the sake of having them, or worked into a force.
